One thing we can say about NXT is that it gives female wrestlers opportunities that they might not get if they were fighting on the WWE main roster. For that reason alone, NXT is known for their captivating storylines and the talent they produce – many of whom, eventually make their way over to the WWE.
For those not in the know, NXT is the developmental branch of the WWE and a spectacle in its own right. While it's affiliated with the WWE, it has its own distinct brand, style, and cast of characters. And we're not going to lie, the divas over at NXT are just as hot - if not hotter - than anybody you can name over at the WWE. And as we previously mentioned, the talent and athleticism of some of these up and comers is unbelievable.
They're gorgeous, athletic, talented, and can kick your butt. Seriously, if you haven't met the amazing and gorgeous divas of NXT, what are you waiting for? I mean, unless you're afraid of badass chicks with rockin' bodies. If that's the case, you may want to stop reading now.
For everybody else though, it's time to meet the fine ladies over at NXT. But if they happen to rock your socks off, don't say we didn't want you.
This “Staten Island Princess” knows what she wants, and she's used to getting her way. Carmella is the incredibly ambitious sort and wants to make WWE history. While her start in NXT was a little unusual, Carmella is a former NBA and NFL dancer, and she has the athletic abilities to succeed in the industry. After all, Carmella is certified fitness instructor and personal trainer, and she also happens to be the daughter of Paul Van Dale, a former professional wrestler from the 1990s. Carmella, like many other divas, grew up watching wrestling, and her favorite personalities were Miss Elizabeth and Trish Stratus.
9 Devin Taylor
Devin Taylor may have started her NXT career backstage instead of slugging it out in the ring, but there's no doubt this girl deserves to be in front of the camera - and the crowd. The pretty brunette with curves for miles may have been defeated by Carmella in her first match, but that didn't stop her from coming back the following day to defeat her in their second match-up. So while many people may be more familiar with Devin interviewing the superstars, it likely won't be too long before we see her becoming the one getting interviewed. Apparently she's just as talented at throwing down as she is holding a microphone. Who knew?
JoJo may only be 21 years old, but this girl next door turned diva is turning heads left and right. The daughter of former professional baseball player Jose Offerman, JoJo originally made her debut with the WWE in 2013, but was later moved to NXT. She now works as a ring announcer and interviewer, but as we saw above with Devin, there's no telling what may next come for this young star. After all, she's still young and has her whole career ahead of her. And we aren't sure about you, but we can't wait to see more of her both outside - and inside - the ring.
You might say Charlotte has wrestling in her blood. After all, she is the daughter of Ric Flair and her brothers, David and Reid Flair, were also wrestlers back in the day. So in a way, it's no surprise that Charlotte is kicking butt and taking names within the realm of NXT. It's something that runs in the family. If anything, it's surprising that it's taken her this long to get started. However, now that she's wrestling, she's already making a name for herself, and showing great skill inside the ring. In fact, few divas can match her, and it's easy to see why. When your father is a 16-time World Champion, you can't help but wonder if perhaps genetics are on her side.
6 Sara Amato
She might look familiar to you, but you might not know where you know her from. If that's the case, perhaps it's because Sara Amato previously went by her ring name of Sara Del Rey. And while she's not currently wrestling under her old name, she's become the first female trainer in NXT. It's not hard to see why, either. After all, while she may have sacrificed sex appeal in the name of sheer badassness, this woman can flat out wrestle.
She's highly skilled, and some even say she's possibly the most talented female wrestler in history. That's pretty damn amazing, and not something to take lightly. For that reason, who cares about sex appeal and stage presence? Her level of talent alone makes her sexy as hell.
5 Dana Brooke
Dana Brooke came to NXT from the fitness world. Considering the fact that she was already in incredible shape with a toned and chiseled body, she made her NXT debut by kicking serious ass. Brooke calls herself “The Total Diva” because of her beauty, brains and talent. And honestly, she's never failed to prove herself in - or out - of the ring. Speaking of outside of the ring, Brooke was in the Fitness International competition at the 2015 Arnold Sports Festival – which is a first for an NXT diva. And if anyone doubts her power, this blonde bombshell is happy to strike them down with a ferocious body slam, utilizing every inch of her sculpted body as leverage.
4 Alexa Bliss
It's hard to look at Alexa Bliss and not go “Awww...” But don't let that cutesy smile, girl next door appeal, and sweet demeanor fool you. This girl is tough. Yes, perhaps she likes to dress up in sparkles and cutesy outfits, but Alexa has been a competitive athlete since the age of five. She started out playing softball, running track, and kickboxing before excelling in gymnastics and even cheerleading. Eventually, she made her way into the world of competitive body-building. After that, the world of professional wrestling wasn't too far behind. She may be tiny and cute, but all of that just adds to her sex appeal. Plus, she has a rockin' body – but who doesn't in the world of WWE?
Speaking of cute, Bayley might be able to challenge Alexa Bliss in a cute and adorable contest. And heck, she might even win. But just as with Alexa, that's part of Bayley's appeal. No, she's not conventionally attractive by WWE standards, but she has a look all her own. She's fresh faced, cute as a button, and who wouldn't want to just hug and squeeze her? In a way, she reminds us of Katy Perry – but sweeter. If that's even possible. But when you see Bayley get in the ring, you get a fast reminder that she may be cute and adorable, but this girl kicks ass. Bayley has had a love affair with wrestling since she was eleven years old, and when she turned eighteen, she began training for the NXT. Her background is in track, basketball and martial arts, so you could say that she's a pretty well rounded athlete.
2 Becky Lynch
Speaking of Bayley, Becky Lynch and Bayley used to be pretty tight. Of course, fans of NXT know that they didn't stay too tight for very long. Lynch turned on the friendliest diva, attacking her from behind and forming a new alliance with Sasha Banks. Of course, even considering that, you can't deny that Becky's fiery red hair, her rebellious personality and hot Irish accent has an incredible appeal of their own. And with her rockin' body and super mad skills, we have no doubt we'll be seeing more of Becky Lynch – and her signature move, the four-leg clover – in NXT and one day, the WWE.
1 Sasha Banks
Sasha Banks is easily one of the biggest badasses in NXT today. Banks, otherwise known as The Boss – a very fitting nickname we might add – is the reigning NXT Women's champion. This beauty also happens to be the cousin of Snoop Dogg, though you wouldn't be able to tell based on looks alone. Banks wasn't always a NXT diva, however. She actually started out in Chaotic Wrestling and the New England Championship Wrestling in 2010, eventually working her way over to the WWE. And if you ask us, it won't take long before this sexy badass is added to the main roster.
